This is a great book IF you have had lots of math
September 17, 2012
I got this for my daughter for her senior year of math after looking at other programs and wanting her to have a challenge. Well, after much frustration we are going with something else. This is excellent IF you have had Algebra 1 and 2 and have some insight in banking. I (the mom) was literally spending well over an hour attempting to understand the lesson and more often then not throwing my hands up. The teachers book was not a help as it began at Algebra 2 which I have never had. I'd only recommend this for a strong business student.
I used this with my daughter in her senior year of high school. Even after completing 2 years of algebra and one of advanced math, this course was challenging! It goes into great depth in figuring income tax, interest rates, etc. It also assumes the parent has the background knowledge regarding how to present the material. That said, upon completing the book, your child will be better prepared than most adults to face the financial world!
This course is quite difficult. The Biblical principles are sound and the content looks really good, but even with my teaching degree, I couldn't understand and teach this course. It may work great for those with math degrees, but if you are a homeschooler looking to teach practical math skills to your students, this is probably too hard for you as well as them.
